What is TemplateData?[संपादन करीं]

TemplateData is the standardized description of a template, used by VisualEditor to improve the template-editing experience for the user. VisualEditor includes a wizard to edit templates, but for the wizard to be most useful, it needs to present specific information to the user about each template, such as a short description of the template's purpose and its parameters. This information is codified formally (by any wiki editor) using TemplateData.

Editing without TemplateData[संपादन करीं]

Without TemplateData, each parameter needs to be added manually when inserting a new template.

No information is provided about what the value of the parameter should be.

Editing with TemplateData[संपादन करीं]

With TemplateData, a list of supported parameters (and their description) is provided for the template.

TemplateData provides context for each parameter, and makes it much easier for users to modify templates.

Adding TemplateData[संपादन करीं]

Anyone can help by adding TemplateData to templates (particularly high-profile ones, such as infoboxes) so that they are easier to edit in VisualEditor. The following is a minimal example, placed on a template's documentation page:

  "description": "insert description here",
  "params": {
    "first parameter": {
      "label": "x",
      "description": "x",
      "type": "string",
      "default": "default value",
      "required": false

You can also add or edit TemplateData using a GUI, by pressing the following button which appears at the top of the edit page: Manage TemplateData

The TemplateData tutorial explains in detail how to add TemplateData information to a template.

Commonly used templates[संपादन करीं]

Here is a list of the most commonly-used templates. When you've added TemplateData to one, add a {{tick}} mark next to it; we'll update the list with new additions as we go. It's advisable to do a null edit on the main template page to force the system to update the database.

For completed items, consult the bot-generated logging page विकिपीडिया:VisualEditor/TemplateData/List.

If you complete an item, mark it here with {{tick}} until the item appears on the logging page.

If you partly complete an item (suggested action), mark the entry with {{yellow tick}} and replace its <!--note--> field with a brief description of what has and/or remains to be done. Partly-done items will appear on the logging page as if they were completed, but do not remove them from this list until they are completed.

checkY: Completed
YesY: Partly completed
N: Done with structural faults; as good as not done
